MIKE: The answers were all correct. The nautical term for this object is Mooring Horn Cleat (nautical), a fitting on ships, boats, and docks to which ropes are tied.

MICHAEL:  Church Pier is an old pier as this was here when I vacationed with my parents back in the 50's and 60's. so this is definitely an old cleat.

Mooring is often accomplished using thick ropes called mooring lines or hawsers. The lines are fixed to deck fittings on the vessel at one end, and fittings on the shore, such as bollards, rings, or cleats, on the other end.

My guess would have been a boat tie down but as I scrolled down to type my response the pic was already revealed.

LIZ: Sorry you did not get the opportunity to guess, but I bet you knew what is was, too, Most everyone who stopped by seem to have the general idea that it was something  to tie a boat to and many knew it was a cleat now they know it is actually called a "Mooring Horn Cleat"

Finally, I got one right...OK, close to right.....I knew what it was but didn't know the correct name.  I would have called it a "thingamajig."  So maybe I can't spell it either!

JANICE:  I am so glad I provided something new for you to learn today. AR is sensational, each day I learn myself something new about the area where a member lives, or some historial event that took place in their state or community and then just lots of facts and numbers. Having a passion for ohotography I love the member's posting of pictures,places, nature, animals, you name it. I am constantly learning. Playing in the rain is so much fun.

KONNIE: I have fun with these too. When I am out I am looking always for something that might be interesting and difficult to guess. You were correct in what you were thinking it was.
